AEG u7101-5 main oven not getting hot enough with fan

When using one of the fan settings, the main (lower) oven gets hot but doesn't appear to get right up to the hot temperatures.
The fan comes on and the oven heats up. Based on the indicator light, it gets up to 180, but no hotter than that, even if I select say 220. If I use a non-fan setting then it gets up to temperature correctly.
I assume that there is only one oven thermostat, so it won't be an issue with that? Is that correct?
I've read that issues with a thermal cut out can turn ovens off prematurely, could that cause this to happen for only the fan settings?
Is there anything else it could be?
